Located in the heart of St. Paul, Union Depot is a sophisticated and versatile venue for a variety of private events, including weddings, fundraisers, galas, and conferences and more.

Completed in 1926, this historic gem boasts neoclassical architecture that exudes timeless charm, eliminating the need for extravagant decor. The awe-inspiring columns enveloping the building facade create a picturesque setting, making Union Depot an ideal backdrop for wedding photos or any special occasion. The largest of seven available event spaces, the Waiting Room is a masterpiece featuring an intricately detailed vaulted ceiling and polished marble floors.

All seven event spaces offer unique charm and functionality. Whether you’re planning a romantic wedding ceremony, a lively cocktail hour, an elegant dinner reception, or a corporate conference, these versatile spaces can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

With ample square footage, Union Depot can comfortably accommodate anywhere from 10 to 1,000 attendees. Choose Union Depot for your event, where the historic charm and adaptable spaces combine to create lasting memories, regardless of the occasion.

We loved having Union Depot as our venue—the huge Waiting Room space meant we could spread out our guests. Beautiful high ceilings and brick walls. Easy to customize with our own vendors when we wanted to. We appreciated the gray draping that gave a more private feel to our event. The team was helpful with our ever-changing layout and did all the setup for us.

The event team was AMAZING to work with—despite our unique and stressful situation of having to change wedding venues a month before our day, your team made the process so smooth and easy. Thank you to all staff that helped us make our day so special!

It really was an incredible night! Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions through the planning stages and for keeping everything running so smoothly the day of. You are all truly amazing!
